    Whenever I visit an Apple Store I always try and come to the conclusion that the touch pads of ALL (!) new MacBooks don't respond to my touch. The cursor just doesn't move.

    Here's the problem: I was born missing both under arms, which never was a problem using computers. I can type on any laptop, cell phone or iPhone without adjustments or help. Untill now...

    The new track pads are made of some sort of other material. I don't have this problem with older MacBooks, and I don't have it with my iPhone (3G).

    Any ideas out there as to why and how to fix it?

    iPhone and new MBP trackpads use the same technology.

    Have you tried having someone adjust the trackpad sensitivity?
